Caption

Clothes faded by the sun. A jumper showing the effect of sunlight on fabric dyes. The outside (background) has faded, whilst the inside (foreground) has retained its original colour. Sunlight causes dyes to fade (photodegradation) by making them unstable. The dyes then slowly break down until the original, un-dyed colour of the garment begins to show through. This is a similar effect to using bleach and is often known as sun-bleaching.
